I'd like to get IP's direct from ARIN and use with a colo or dedicated server I run a few dozen domains almost all of which are ecommerce sites the ones which accept credit cards of course have SSL and a dedicated IP all the others right now are taking offline payments i'd like to get them all setup with SSL with their own IP since they are starting to bring in more sales. Sites right now are being hosted all over the place mainly vps and shared. I want to have them all on one or more servers that I have complete control over including the IP's. I'm new to the forums but did search for arin and read a few posts about the justification and from what I read SSL is justified to get IPs. Can anyone give me more information on what I should be doing first before applying or how to go about it with them. I'm looking at arin's fee schedule and i would apply under the x-small/micro allocation how much smaller from /20 do they go is there a specific number of IP's i would get for the app fee of $1250 a year or how does that work exactly?
I have 2 ecommerce sites now hosted at 2 different shared locations, both sites offer same exact products and pricing. I am in the process of elancing out the recode/rebuild for both sites to share one mysql database, cart and to be housed together in one VPS.
I plan to put them both on 1 windows VPS (they are asp) each with its own separate IP but have heard this can cause problems with search engines especially google. I have great natural organic right now (1st position for 5 of my demo keywords) and dont want to put that at risk but getting really tired of 2 separate backends, carts, hosting etc..
The past few days I have had to request an additional IP address from my hosting provider and I was confronted with ARIN regulations. Though I had heard of them, I have ever actually been told usage must me in accordance to those.
I got an answer which told me I should be OK, but it still remains vague. I have looked though ARIN's web site but nothing gets any clearer. So, I'd like to ask here: does anybody know what would be justified IP usage according to ARIN? Are there boundaries, do IPs get pulled if they aren't justified?
(I'm talking about IPv4)
(Mods: I was unsure where to place this, but this seemed the place where I could get the most useful responses)
Im in the process of setting up my ecommerce store selling baby/childrens clothing items etc. But I cant decide what webhosting site to use. Ive heard a lot about hostmonster and 1and1...which one of these are better?
an ecommerce site someone is planning on hosting. They will be selling around 100 products using OSCommerce and no creditcard etc details will be stored on the server. Do you think its a wise choice to start off on a shared host? If yes, are there any additional requirements they should look out for?
After a few threads on Web Hosting Talk, I have decided to go with Magento eCommerce CMS because it is powerful and I like it
The only thing I am looking for is a host that will support it and that will let me either upgrade to a VPS, or straight to a Dedicated Server (or maybe even a co-location). Because I am a startup business, the costs need to be low (yes, I know good hosting doesn't come cheap and I know I need to put into consideration SSL).
1 major thing. It NEEDS to be in the UK.
I was chatting to one of Rackspace UKs live help support people and they priced their entry level server at "Â£255 - Â£355 per month", which being a startup is a bit of a hefty price.
So, how do you think I should start? Shared, VPS or straight to dedicated? Also, what UK hosts do you recommend?
Topics on good hosts have been repeated over and over again, and we have seen many new emerging while many old fading, and still too many have changed. In the past 2/3 years, what has happened to your host? Get your host listed in this thread if your host has kept their service as promised in the past 2/3 years or even longer. This will become a most useful map for new people to make their first step.
Which company would be better to choose for eCommerce hosting simplehelix.com or serverpoint.com?
The first one look like specialized in eCommerce hostting (only two plans, any type of eCommerce carts and magento dowloads, special server type) the seconed is just reliable and also provides support of any eCommerce carts.
I started out with a reseller account at Webkore.net. Great company, I outgrew their services and moved to Innohosting over a year ago.
Before I moved to InnoHosting, I sent in a cancellation request (they use WHMCS)...but nothing was every canceled in their system and I kept getting invoices from them. I simply ignored them. Fair enough, right?
Now, as I've said...I've been with Inno for over a year now. In that past year Webkore.net seems to have been acquired by eCommerce Discovery.
Here is the weird problem. My account on their server was never deleted! I, as a reseller had WHMCS installed was using cron jobs to automatically send emails.
A few weeks ago, I started recieving cron job reports from cpsev1.wirednoc.net, a domain owned by eCommerce Discovery. I really wouldn't care too much, but apparently the whole WHMCS system is still active and is sending my clients emails (Invoice reminders, domain renewal reminders, etc etc...).
This is obviously something that needs to be dealt with as it's getting a little out of hand. I only had 35 clients in WHMCS when I was with them...all of which are still with me.
I've called the number at this page: [url] multiple times only to be forwarded to a voice message. I just now actually left my voice message. Emails to Webkore.net have gone unanswered for 6 months, so I'm not even going to bother with that.
What I don't understand is how my account, over a year old and unpaid, is still not only ON the server...but ACTIVE, unsuspended, and running cron jobs. I'm going to shoot eCommerce Discovery an email shortly and will update this thread if they reply, although...chances don't look good.
I've officially decided to go with Hostgator but I'm having a hard time choosing which type of plan would make the most sense for; maybe there is something I'm not seeing and I'm hoping to get some additional insight...
Here is my plan; I plan on hosting multiple domains (business and personal) and atleast one e commerce website to start and it will eventually grow into about 5 down the road (this is going to be a drawn out process and I want to do it right).
The problem I have is I realize in order to get a true ecommerce website up in running I will need a dedicated IP address and SSL certificate for each site. If I purchase the Business plan it only comes with one dedicated IP and one SSL cert; Hostgator also told me that I'm unable to add an additional dedicated IP address or SSL cert to the business plan so I would have to purchase an additional Business Plan (12.95) per each site. It sounds like I could still host private and not SSL required sites on the business plan and as much domains as I want.
If I go the reseller path then the cost per month will be twice as much as the Business Plan and there is no dedicated IP address included. I will also have to purchase dedicated IP addresses at 2.00 a month and SSL certs as well so that method could get expensive.
I'm also not sure if the baby plan would suffice as well, but apparently not because there is a limit of 1 dedicated IP per plan
What would you guys recommend I do; I want a plan that will allow me to grow with them.
Just curious on what your guys thoughts were..
Also I read a previous post in this forum that someone said their SSL cert prompted the end-user to install the certificate; Being in Ecommerce this is obviously unacceptable to me.
I have a pretty beefy VPS (1 Gb RAM, equal share Intel xeon Quad core processor), but I have no idea how many other VPS's are sharing that processor.
Is there any way to know that? I'm guessing the hosting company (Future Host - very happy with them btw) isn't going to tell me.
Right now my stats are pretty low, but how many individual cPanel accounts (1 site each) before it starts to bog down? I know it depends largely on the traffic, but is 20-30 low-volume sites a lot for a VPS with 1Gb ram?
I have a few personal sites one server and my business sites on another. I was thinking of moving the personal ones to my business VPS (to save money) but I don't want someone to be able to do a NS or IP search on one group and find the others or see that they're related in any way. (I had a weird experience with a business contact contacting me via a personal site that he found by a NS search. That's why they're on another server now.)
Is is possible to add a second NS (another domain) on separate IPs to handle the personal sites, and my current NS handle the biz sites? Or should I just keep them on two different servers?
I thought maybe I could make the personal sites into their own reseller account and do a new NS that way, but if there's an easier way I'd rather do that.
I know a guy who has about 10 domains on the same IP and each of the domains uses its domain name as its own NS. I think the term he used was NS aliasing. I think it was all done by changing the DNS stuff in WHM. I tried to do what he said but it didn't work for me. Also I'm not sure how to handle the registrar part. They want two separate IPs for the NS, but he's using only one.
i currently have 2 webhosting providers but want to consolidate to one acct at one host with a bit better load times...
1. JaguarPc - i have two accts with them
a. i have a shared acct with them currently - i believe its called the gigadeal (something like $10 a month). i have been with them since 2000, pretty decent host not too much downtime. support is "ok" when needed. currently i have 3 smallish websites hosted on this one acct, they dont get a lot of traffic. two of them are using wordpress one is just a static html site. i did a look up and found the server has about 130 sites hosetd on it. so not too bad in regards to overselling. however my big problem is the site takes about 900-1500ms to generate a page. this seems to be pretty often. again the sites dont really draw that much traffic. so thats not the problem here.
b. i also have one of their freedom vps accts with upgraded ram and bandwidth. i only have one site hosted on it. this site used to get about 500K+ unique visitors a month. at its peak we were serving around 1tb bandwidth a month... i know we ran the vps hard but considering we wanted to stay under $50 it worked well. there was of course some downtime due to the massive traffic - [we serve up a popular flash cartoon website].
2. Hostgator - babygator plan this host only serves up one wordpress site - the site isnt very well known yet, but the site is growing each month. the funny thing is that when i looked up this server there was about 830 websites hosted on it - obviously oversold and crowded. support really sucks here imho. however, the page load time is anywhere between 250ms to 500ms a lot faster than JaguarPcs. which is crazy since jag has much less sites on the server... im looking to basically consolidate the websites that are on both shared plans. my original thought was to keep them all on my shared hosting acct at jaguarpc (the one with the 3 sites). obviously i cannot add them to the vps since its pretty active. also the vps is business and the other sites are all personal. and i dont want them to mix so to speak.
i am currently spending about $20 a month between the two shared host plans. im looking for some recommendations as to where to move -- where speed isnt such a big problem, and i can maintain one acct. it would be great if i could host these sites all for around $20 - hopefully without much lag.
was thinking mediatemple - but after reading so many negative posts here about them - im not sure...
I am interested in your suggestions as to what I should do. I need a setup that will allow me to host several sites. They are mostly my own and low traffic. I do not offer hosting to any other folks, if so, i will set the sites up myself. I need mysql, email and virus checker, php, and firewall. I would like unix/linus hosting and am used to cpanel. Would prefer east coast hosting since many sites pertain to local areas there. I was thinkg of a reseller or webmaster package.
In terms of the secure domain, if I had a secure site and wished to access some information on a web page that was from a NON-SECURE domain or at least duplicate the non secure information on to the secure page, does the user need to click acknowledge buttons to go in and out of the secure areas? Can I copy or transfer information [eg goggle search results] onto the secure page without this necessity?
I have a godaddy deluxe Linux hosting plan for the next year. I'm wondering how I can host my two sites on that plan. According to GoDaddy it's possible but how can I do that and have each site separately? It says the only way would be to have it like...Url.com/keyword for other site but I don't want that. I want it to be so you visit one site and it takes you to that exact site.
Now i've been noticing in my logs that i have been getting referals from some other sites, but they appeared to be refering from pages with the same name as mine. I thought nothing of it until sitting on live support one evening i noticed a few visitors were viewing other domains. Which isn't right as my system shows me visitors and which page thay are viewing on my site.
Now they all actually link to my own site whenever you click a link, but seems little odd as it appears they have downloaded my entire site to their server. Almost like mirroring it without my permission or request.
if there is a general rule of thumb on the amount of web sites can be loaded onto an Apache server which has 4Gb RAM and RAID. Each site will utilize one database, of about 5 Mb max. Preferably CPanel, else is there something else recommended for managing lots of sites?
Can I conceivably get 1000 sites per server or more?
What/where in httpd.conf do i tweak to allow more files to be open?
Just getting started with IIS on Windows XP Pro. One thing I have a question about is why don't I have an option to 'create new website' when I right click on the Web Sites node? Am I only allowed to use Default Web Site? Also, I know it's not a rights issue because I'm logged in as administrator.
I'm looking at IIS on our server which has Windows Server 2003. On that machine I can create multiple web sites by right clicking on the Web Sites node? Is this just not an option with XP Pro?
